Radio Free Harford

Tim Harford, the affable British economist who is a star of book writing, journalism, and even TV (his BBC program was called Trust Me, I’m an Economist), is now taking to the radio waves as well, at least in the U.K. His first radio documentary, Analysis: Repugnant Markets, airs today on BBC radio (3:30 p.m. EDT), and will be archived here for at least a week. This episode includes Al Roth and Virginia Postrel discussing the market for organs for transplantation, a subject we’ve covered often here. If that subject is too grim for you, it should be said that Harford’s first program will also include discussions on terrorism futures and dwarf tossing.
